Summer Knitting

It is hot here.  I know, it's summer.  It's supposed to be hot outside and I don't have a problem with that.  But this is really and truly miserable hot and humid weather.  Temperatures are in the 90's and the humidity level is darn close to being underwater.  My boys are both on one of the local swimming and diving teams, and my oldest also plays tennis four days each week.  What this means for me is that I have to be outside in the heat & humidity while they are engaged in their activities.  My Canadian blood is not up for these temperatures.

I love the fact that my boys are so active, I really, really do.  But their aquatics and tennis programs are outdoors in the summer.  And they go from 10:00 am until 4:00pm.  And there isn't an air conditioner in sight.  Luckily I can jump in the pool and swim laps to cool off or I would not survive.  But my biggest complaint is that it is too hot to knit!  My hands perspire and the yarn starts to stick instead of gliding over my fingers.  The weight of my project in my lap adds a layer of insulation that I really don't need.  If anyone has any suggestions as to how to knit while in the pool, I'm all ears!
